Supervisory Studies: Technical Aspects of Supervision focuses on the technical aspects of management and their relationship to the job of the foreman. The book first takes a look at the organization of factories, including production system, size and character of factories, types of production, production facilities, and methods in handling materials. The text then discusses production design and development. Topics include technological change, market research, design of products, legal protection, patents, registered designs, and trademarks. The monograph reviews the process of production planning and control. Position of production control in the organization; production control and the control of production; divisions of production control; materials movement; and product specification are given importance. The text also reviews the technique of work study, including factory waste, status and division of work study, rules of motion economy, wage payment systems, and work measurement. The text is an important resource material for readers interested in the technical aspects of management.
